    I prefer a tear drop shaped dodger in silver, or some variation of silver, with a 16 to 20 inch leader pulled somewhere between 1.6 to 2.0mph. White hoochies plugged with procure or tipped with anchovy, or gulp smelt are my preferred baits.

    Re: King Trolling Gear

    I have two standard setups. Dodger and white/green hoochie, and dodger with gulp minnow. Tipping a hoochie with a piece of cured anchovy helps. Used to use a cut piece of minnow too.

    Gulp minnow is a dead on imitation of a pond smelt, which is the base forage in Oroville and Almanor.

    Plenty of other offerings work too. Needlefish in particular, and an 1/8 oz naked Kastmaster has put some fish in the boat when you know you’re on fish, but they have lockjaw.

    Dead-drifting minnows around trees near the mouths of coves is also a seldom used method that has produced fish off more than a few houseboat trips. All just food for thought.

    Re: King Trolling Gear

    I've always used trout and kokanee tackle tipped with a little anchovy.

    Around the Dam at Berryessa and up the narrows I've used a whole anchovy in a Franklin Bullet Rotator 90' - 115' down.

    You could also use a Krippled Anchovy Head rigged or rig them yourself.

    XPLO51v3 posted a great YouTube video on how to rig the Krippled Anchovy Head on the Saltwater Salmon Thread!

    I use a small rubber band to hold the hooks up next to the tail.

    No dodger or flasher.

    King Trolling Gear

    Just curious if any of you might be willing to share some suggestions on what kind of gear that you would recommend to stock up on for landlocked salmon trolling?

    I have caught a few on speedy shiners but haven’t tried too much else.

    Will typical Kokanee hoochies work or should they be set up differently?

    Any particular size or kind of dodgers?

    As always I appreciate any info you may be able to share.
